Abstract: Educational Institutions are storing their data and their transactions in the physical media such as registers, books, records and in digital media like hard disks and in cloud storage. These type of storage media are insecure and are prone to data tampering. Even when they are protected with a password, they can be altered if the user’s password has been hacked, which means the traditional methods of record keeping are insecure. Blockchain has a decentralized architecture which store and secure transactions transparently and there will be no central authority over those occurring transactions. So, a model is implemented which uses the core technology of the Block-chain to store and secure the institutional data which will be in the form of transactions. These transactions can be easily viewed by anyone in the connected network. Even if the data is tampered it can be detected easily. This model has the advantages of Block-chain minus the investments and risks associated with it.
